Video made frame by frame by Sonia Mota, set to Mr Cha Cha, taken from Corvus Stone II, our second album.
The track is fun and now you can see as well as hear that!

This video is in advance of the release of a new single by Corvus Stone. That single will be released on INDEPANTIES DAY 2015

Corvus Stone remembering how Mr Cha Cha was written
Mr Cha Cha - Not many bands would do this but we did the following. Robert said he had something he wanted to do on drums. Two things in fact (See Uncle Schunkle). So! He records four plus minutes of drums, with no regard for what the hell we will do with it once we get it. (He seems to have learnt this from Pasi). Then drops it on us. We all listened and decided there was nothing we could do with it, so that made it interesting and of course, a challenge. Unfortunately, Pasi had first whack at it and made the situation worse than ever with keyboards that seemed to be in a fight with a drummer. Petri ?I can play to anything? Lindström, added his disco bass as usual and it did help. It didn?t help Colin but I expect it helped in some way.
Colin tried to ignore the drums and play to Pasi. that didn?t go swimmingly, so he tried to play with Petri. That worked better but it sounded terrible. We always try and avoid sounding terrible, so Colin ignored the bass, keys and drums and played something else. That worked. That method is known as Pasification. We don?t advise all bands to try this. We sat and looked at all the files for some weeks and that was unbelievably effective. Petri changed a bass section, Pasi added more keys and Colin retaliated with more guitars. The result? Take a listen!
